Recent iPhone Images

After taking a little unplanned hiatus, I am again enthusiastically posting to instagram.  I admit to sometimes getting envious of these wonderful photographers I follow who never seem to run out of inspiration.  Mine seems to come in waves – but I am thankful … Continue reading

Day 6 – Every Little Thing

This prompt was actually for yesterday, and it said, “Begin this day with eyes wide open to the tiny wonders that are constantly swirling all around you. Even at the most ordinary time of day, while doing the most mundane … Continue reading

for today

Well I had planned on capturing our slow transition to our new house at least by iPhone this week, but so far it it isn’t working out.  Boo!  Hopefully tomorrow I will have a chance to capture a few shots when I go out there to do some measuring.

In the meantime, at the Mortal Muses photography site they are focusing this week on applied textures, and this photo I took at the Guinness Factory in Dublin, Ireland was featured today:

Cool!

Happy Day Before Thanksgiving!!

My sister, Annabel, and I hung out today.  We went to a fairly new restaurant called Bell Street Burritos, which is making almost exact replicas of the Tortillas burritos of yore.  Why do I not have any pictures from lunch at Bell Street Burritos?  Because I was way too busy inhaling that thing.

We then went antique shopping at Kudzu Antiques, where I more than made up for my dearth of burrito pictures by capturing all manner of things fun, cool and bizarre.

The first photo is below, and I wonder if they are beautiful cups?  ……..candle holders?  I don’t know – they were shiny….sometimes that’s all that matters……

A good rule of thumb that I have come to live by, is that if you aren’t quite sure what something is, turn it into a Devo hat.

A couple of shots of a sassy hat and pair of shoes.  Once again I ask myself, why didn’t I get these things? (and whoever that is that I hear saying “It’s because your head is too ginormous for any hat”, just shut it!)

Why so sad little doll?  Why?

You know you want that coat, Jeanie (rarrrrrrrrr).

And finally, an image that disturbed me beyond words.  Is it the sight of several severed doll heads staring blankly into space that fills me with fear?  Or is it the dainty presentation of said doll heads in a silver antique bowl that I find so bizarre?   Whichever, it’s going to be awhile before I can get this out of my head.
